If you close your eyes while listening to ‘Bring it On’, the new single from Australian country music act The Rough Diamonds, you can easily imagine you’re in Tamworth in any given January, with the dry heat and the occasional rogue thunderstorm, with kids in off properties, crowds on Peel Street, lots of good cheer and full campgrounds and a few days to just relax and listen to music. That’s what this song evokes: it is country music that is identifiably Australian, and it’s terrific.

The Rough Diamonds are sisters Lou, Cec and Em – although since recording this song Lou has moved to country Victoria, leaving Cec and Em to be the diamonds.
